Nov. 15th RECAP: FEATHERWEIGHT Takes The Night!!

It was an energetic night on the Inspirado stage, one with little trash talk, pushups and holiday cheer.  Wando, the previous Inspirado champions, decided to go first, Featherweight jumped up and took the stage!

Featherweight chose a stylistic challenge and received Cheer.  They needed to do a challenge in the style of a holiday special.  We were given a PBS style holiday special, with a telethon attached to raise money for needy families.  The holiday special was about a poor father and his young legless daughter who were homeless on christmas eve.  Everyone in the town didn’t want anything to do with the poor family, they were destined to freeze to death on christmas eve.  The special was filled with all sorts of red flags for the network, a very detailed human birth, a caucasian chalk circle style fight for the “christmas baby” and offensive Christmas stand up.  Twas a night for all to remember, and be thankful for what we have.

Wando took the stage next and chose a dumb challenge, they received teleprompter and had to perform a monoscene  of a newscast where the teleprompter was broken.  Two newscasters struggled to find their lines during a broadcast.  Panic ensued and their producer Carl, “the most disgusting person in the world”, didn’t help either.  Cheryl, the co-anchor, was so depressed that she said she’d take Carl back if he did 50 push ups, he did, and her world was turned upside down.  Wando painted and filled out the world wonderfully.  Jumping back and forth, changing characters multiple times, it was a newscast that was definitely more informative then the regular news.

FEATHERWEIGHT!  The 0-2 Inspirado team has updated their record to 1-2!  Now they have a bi-week for Thanksgiving and then they’re back to take on Weekend of Regret!  Can Featherweight continue this winning streak?  Or will Weekend of Regret sweep them away?  You decide, Nov. 29th at 11pm!  INSPIRADOOOOO!!!!!!


September 1st Recap: BRICK WINS; Gets One Step Closer To OH SHIT!


The infamous OH SHIT! challenge, (the only challenge, that in the history of Inspirado has never been picked) is one show away from, possibly, seeing its day.  Brick rejoiced last night as they defeated the almighty Simpson, Barker & Jones LLC in what some may call the “milkiest” Inspirado ever.  It all started with the trash talk, Chris Simpson pulled up a Facebook post that his mother left him, calling for him to beat Brick.  Brick team captain, Jamaal Sedayo, countered by saying, “mmmm”…tell her I say hello.   OH SHIT! That was some MOTHER- FUDGIN’ trash talk!

Simpson, Barker & Jones LLC went first and chose a dumb challenge and received Sit, Stand, Breast-feed;  at all times someone needed to be either sitting, standing or breast-feeding.  From this birthed a number of breast oriented scenes- interviews, school meetings, and friendly neighborhood gatherings.  One of the highlights was probably the 7 foot tall breast-feeding 7 year old who got all the (freakish) nutrients he needed from his mothers milk.  Another highlight was the tense trade of the coveted “silver plated nipple” for a lifetime subscription of fishing magazines (pretty great trade).  The rest of the piece was filled in with a breast feeding mongoose, bowls of buffalo milk and the office where “every employee sucks on a tit for an hour a day”.  At the end, there wasn’t a person in the audience who wasn’t craving a glass of milk.

In their 7th week on the Inspirado stage, Brick chose a stylistic challenge and received Call Now!; they had to perform a piece in the style of a telethon fundraiser.  A frustrated produced did his best to direct a celebrity filled show to raise money for aids.  Adam Sandler and Winona Ryder hosted the evening with an ASL assistant who was really a frat guy who was dared to show his ass on TV (he did).  The piece was filled with video montages with poignant messages about aids; “things are really bad when you get aids”, “don’t touch things if they have aids on them” and “block-building is possible when you have aids”.  We were graced by Will Smith, Laurence Fishburne and Jada Pinkett-Smith.  High points of the show were a Will Smith action montage, a Mr. Deeds action montage (topped with an Opera Man impression) and a 2 minute stand up set about 90’s bands, delivered by the ASL assistant.  In the end, it would be Warren Buffet (who pledged $50,000) and Brick who were left standing at the top.

With the seventh week in the bag, one has to wonder, who will stop Brick from their undefeated run on the Inspirado stage?  The only answer is…DOUBLE DATE.  This 4 person indie powerhouse is not only hilarious, but they stand to unseat the 7 time Inspirado champions with ease.  Will the champions be de-throned?  Will Brick continue on to the OH SHIT! challenge?  There is only one way to find out!  Thursday, 11pm at INNNNSSSPPPPIIIIRRADDDDDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
